Who Cares?

surrender-2A friend of mine wrote, “Joseph knew that if he dared to touch his master’s (Potiphar) wife, it would cause him to sin against his beloved God, and that grieved him more than anything.”
How often do we really think about how God feels? We get so focused on what we want to do and how we’re feeling that we don’t slow down to ask, “Will this action hurt the one I say I love?”
The English word love has been so abused lately as to lose its true meaning. One biblical definition is that love “does not insist on its own way.” Why? Because it hurts others!
Who cares when we decide to do our own thing? Jesus does. Yes, He is God and is self-sufficient. And yet, He still wept over the loss of a dear friend and the hurt it caused those who loved him. He cried despite knowing He was about to heal that hurt.
Jesus weeps. Let that soak into your thinking the next time you’re tempted to do, say or see something you shouldn’t.
